Chocolate mousse has always been one of my favorite desserts but it’s one that I rarely treat myself to. I love how thick and creamy the texture is and how rich the flavors are.
So how was I going to recreate one of my favorite dessert without dairy? Simple, coconut milk! But this recipe doesn’t have a hint of coconut flavor, it’s all sweet chocolate, and it’s absolutely divine!
What You’ll Need:
1 can full-fat coconut milk
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup + a little extra, sugar or to taste
What You'll Do:
Open the coconut milk, pour into bowl. (Don’t shake the can before opening.) Place it in the fridge uncovered overnight to thicken. Once thick, whip in your cocoa, vanilla, and sugar with an electric mixer Stored uncovered in the fridge, the mixture gets even thicker.
